'Not moving on' - Mellow, Melodic Eurorack Performance AJH MiniMod & Gemini

"One of several tracks I'm weighing up for the next 'tomorrow the cure' release on Bandcamp, which will consist of 'live sessions' (as was the previous TTC release), and will be tiltled 'Two Voices'.

This track makes particular use of the Gemini VCF as two seperate filters - the melodic part (an arpeggio from the Keystep in random mode) consists of either the Entropic Doom (alone as a pitched noise VCO, sometimes with a regular VCO mixed into it's audio input, or used as a sync source), or just the standard VCO through the Ring SM (where additional octaves are added). The output of both the Entropic Doom and the Ring SM go to independent filters on the Gemini, Low Pass and Band Pass respectively. Then, the keyboard/sequencer gate from the Keystep triggers the Sample & Hold module, which modulates the mix between the output of these two filters using the Gemini's built-in voltage controlled mixer/cross-fader. I'm also using the CV Mix module to set the modulation level, range, and start/end positions.
The drone sound is two VCOs going through the Wave Swarm to the Ladder Filter, at certain points I manually shift the pitch of one of the VCOs using the Precision Voltages module, via the Glide module (up only).
Recorded into AUM on an iPad with EOS2 reverb.
Added video footage is of the North Norfolk Railway, then the Mid Norfolk Railway, UK (before 'lockdown')."
